I’m not perfect. Sometimes my mind gets messy, and I can fall into a place that’s not super healthy, mentally speaking. I think everyone goes through this. Just part of life, I suspect. Can’t appreciate the highs without experiencing the lows.
These past few weeks have been difficult for me, especially with the holidays. Things have been weighing heavily on my mind. Personal issues.
But in the end I’ve also come to realize how much I appreciate everything I have. Not just my friends and family. But for the first time in a long time, I feel truly happy and satisfied with my work situation. I’m working with and for some really awesome people. Plus my schedule allows me the flexibility to pursue my own freelancing. I know not a lot of people can claim that. I may not be diving in gold Scrooge McDuck style, but I’m happy. And that has to count for something.
If you’re going through something similar right now, talk with someone you can trust. It really helps to organize your thoughts when you have to vocalize them to someone. And if you think you don’t have anyone you can trust, well, feel free to reach out to me. We all need help once in a while. The rising tide floats all the boats.
When we’re born, we’re perfect. Tiny, soft, and innocent. But as we grow, we weather. Life happens. I definitely have some scars. Physical and otherwise. Maybe more than the average person my age should have. But there’s a meaningful story behind each one, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
I hope everyone had a merry Christmas, Hanukah, Festivus, or whatever you celebrate.
We’ve all grown in 2017. Experiences had; people met. No stopping now though. Let’s keep moving forward. Here’s to the new year.
